My best shot of the day came immediately after my worst shot of the day......hehe
Lets set the stage:
This is an easily reachable par5 18th.......500yds. I'm even par through 17 holes and thinking to myself......"I'm making no worse than birdie to shoot under par today." I'm playing well so this is a done deal! All I need to do is hit my drive in the fairway. (I just 3-putted the 17th green from 15' to make bogey to fall back to even par) LOL....it was a fast putt and I got greedy.
After a perfect drive right down the 18th fairway...... I had 209yds to the pin which is a perfect 4hybrid for the conditions of the day. I was going to stick it and make eagle!!! The green complex has trees both left & right and a massive ditch fronting the green. I pushed my hybrid into the left trees and it kicked into the ditch. #%^&.......I had just ruined what should have been, AT WORST, and even par round of 72. Son of A.............
I take my penalty drop short of the ditch.... 66yds to the pin.............I have downhill lie and a front pin. I open my 60deg wedge slightly and give it a nice 3/4 swing and nip it perfectly. The ball lands on the front of the green, takes 1 hop......and stops stone dead 8" from the cup. I tap-in......and save my par.
I did make 5 birdies today, but that par saving wedge shot was definitely my best shot of the day
